The International Forum to Advance First Responder Innovation focuses on enhancing and expanding the development of affordable technology and innovative solutions to improve first responder safety, efficiency and effectiveness.
IFAFRI has identified 10 first responder Common Global Capability Gaps. The capability gaps were identified and described by first responders around the world. They provide a repository for academia and industry with real first responder needs. Innovative technologies are needed to close the gaps and to enhance first responder safety, effectiveness and efficiency.
The IFAFRI R&D repository collects and provides information on ongoing and past academic research projects that focus on innovative first responder technology and concepts. The technology and concepts are linked to the IFAFRI 10 common capability gaps.
